The day the two-month old Occupy Los Angeles camp is evicted from City Hall, EnviroReporter.com tests three months worth of HEPA filter-cleaned air in an historic downtown Los Angeles building with central air. Much to our surprise, the HEPA filter dust tests 364% of normal, hotter than expected.
Disturbing readings from one of Radiation Station Central’s HEPA filters after just 30 days of use: 308% of normal background higher. Alpha and beta radiation captured by the filter can be attributed to the triple Fukushima Japan meltdowns, melt-throughs and melt-outs and the decision to begin burning 550,000 tons of radioactive debris in Tokyo from October to March, sending a double dose of radioactive fallout on the Jet Stream over the Pacific to land on America, Canada and beyond. Finding this high a level of radiation is considered dangerous by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Ingested alpha particles can be up to 1,000 times more dangerous than their beta and gamma counterparts.
Los Angeles’ first impacted storm detected by Radiation Station Central in Santa Monica was a troubling sign of what was to come later in the evening: fallout from the triple meltdowns at Fukushima Japan and, even more unbelievably, radioactive contamination from the 550,000 tons of radioactive debris incinerated in Tokyo beginning in October 2011.
After just 53 days of air cleaning at Radiation Station in Santa Monica, California, two HEPA filters’ dust aggregate comes in at a worrisome 216.0% of background higher than normal. Even in drier climes like Southern California, which hasn’t been hit (yet) by jet stream-carried storms suffused with radioactive fallout from the triple Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns in Japan, there is measurable radiation in dust particulates breathed by millions in the Greater Los Angeles area.
EnviroReporter.com‘s Radiation Station continues to operate uninterrupted 24/7 since it began operation on the Ides of March, four days after the March 11, 2011 triple meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors complex in Japan.
These graphs by Radiation Station graph artist Dale Ramicone give an excellent idea of the range radiation readings we’ve taken [...]
Over 4,036 radiation tests & reports from March 15, 2011 to May 26, 2013 from nine Radiation Stations.
Note that none of our readings at Radiation Station Santa Monica are impacted by radon progeny as we discuss in Beta Watch.

After thousands of radiation tests and comments, seen by nearly two million viewers, EnviroReporter.com inaugurates Radiation Conversation starting with startling revelations of high levels of radiation in Japanese products in Southern California, including beer, sake and green tea. Also, new evidence of the spread of Fukushima fallout is found at alarming levels at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion indicating airborne radiation’s slow spread across the entire Northern Hemisphere.
EnviroReporter.com travels to Bryce Canyon National Park where it detects high radiation from a storm that didn’t originate from the Jet Stream which has been responsible for transporting radioactive fallout from the triple meltdowns at Fukushima, Japan. Rain clocks in at 258% of previous background with the most dangerous radiation, alpha, dominating the reading. Alpha radiation is 60 to 1,000 times more dangerous than beta or gamma radiation.
Ten years to the day after the terrible attacks of September 11, 2011 overlooking the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. It also happened to be the six month anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi multiple meltdowns in Japan. It was evident in the unexpectedly hot rain that was raining down on us coming in at ~207% and ~270% over normal, long after so called radon-daughters were washed out of the electric air.
Japanese vegetable juice spot checks at a whopping 53% over background radiation in an ironic twist since the vegetable drink is made up of carrots, spinach, and all sorts of plants that are vulnerable to multiple meltdowns-created nuclear fallout. While it may not be surprising to find this level of radiation in this Japanese juice, it is surprising to find it for sale in Los Angeles.
Japanese-made sake bought in Southern California registers 22.3% above background, but unlike background radiation, you swallow sake. When detecting with the Inspector the sake in its unopened bottle, there was little ionization above background radiation making this significant reading all the more troublesome because it indicates the presence of alpha radiation which is up to a thousand times more dangerous than beta and gamma radiation.
Four Japanese beers are tested at Radiation Station and three have higher radiation than normal, including one beer that came in 26.6% higher in radiation than found in background. These beers were purchased at a Japanese store in Los Angeles.
A popular Japanese-made Swiss Roll Green Tea cake tests 21.6% higher in radiation than normal. Detection results of the cakes out of their packaging indicate possible heightened alpha radiation.
Radiation Station Posts (dozens of posts)
Dozens of original EnviroReporter.com news posts including sampling, testing and analysis from a news source that has covered radiation issues since 1998. Multiple databases from March 15, 2011 to present with thousands of tests of food, drink, air, rain, mist, airline cabins and more which inform dozens of articles and [...]
Two different Japanese rice beers are 30.2% above background as measured in filters the contents were poured through. Radiation Station graph artist Dale Ramicone buys two beers to tested by EnviroReporter.com and one beer’s twice-filtered liquid comes in at approximately 62% above the background level.
EnviroReporter.com detects 65.1% higher than normal radiation in Sencha green tea from Japan purchased at a Japanese-run store in Southern California by Radiation Station’s graph artist Dale Ramicone. Japanese green tea can be purchased all over Southern California and the rest of the United States.
Adlay tea from Japan tests over 39% higher in radiation compared to background at Radiation Station in Santa Monica California. Tea was bought at a local Japanese market in the Los Angeles area.
Japanese Dattan Soba Cha tea tests 32.9% higher than background radiation at Radiation Station. This popular tea is made from buckwheat seed that is harvested every three months.
Japanese seaweed bought in Southern California in a bag tests 54.2% higher in radiation than background levels at Radiation Station. Tested out of the bag, the seaweed tests 67.2% higher, or 22.6% higher than in the bag which suggests the presence of deadly alpha radiation, which is 20 to 1,000 more lethal that beta and gamma radiation.
Ten minute interior averages of HEPA filters’ aggregate from 7/19/11 after 23 days of use. All readings are ABOVE background by a significant amount showing that even in sunny Southern California, spared the hot rains rolling across the country and Canada on the jet stream, that substantial radiation is in the air penetrating structures.
Only 24 days since last testing and cleaning the Honeywell HEPA filter, the particulate pile still comes in at a whopping 79% over background. This is of special note because the only precipitation at Radiation Station during those three weeks was June Gloom. We’ve picked up heightened radiation in June Gloom precipitate before but the [...]
EnviroReporter.com expands Radiation Station’s Fukushima fallout coverage to include choices for rad free food foraging. This is in part a reaction to the government’s abandonment of crucial radiation monitoring.

Even the multiple meltdowns and melt-throughs in Japan at the worst nuclear reactor disaster in history can’t crimp the style of the Second Annual Toxies Red Carpet Awards for Bad Actor Chemicals taking place at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood California June 16, 2011 at 4 pm and is also streaming live on the Toxies website. This reporter’s favorite Toxie remains the silver siren with rocket booster boots named Perchlorate which has impacted water supplies in 43 states including California where millions drink this toxic rocket fuel oxidizer. Perchlorate the foxy Toxie redefines what it means to be bad.
